Biography

The daughter of mining engineer Manuel Pascual and decorator María del Rosario Berrocal, Yola Berrocal grew up in Pozuelo de Alarcón in Madrid, and studied Dramatic Art. Her first appearance on television was in 1994 on the show ¿Cómo lo veis? presented by Joaquín Prat, where she went with her family as a contestant. In 1997 she appeared as a dancer on the José Luis Moreno [es] program Risas y estrellas.

She has undergone several breast augmentation operations.[8]

In February 2006, Berrocal again appeared on the cover of Interviú, with the headline "I am going to put big tits in fashion in Spain." In the summer of that year she presented herself as a candidate for the mayorship of Marbella, creating the Yola Independiente Liberal (YIL) party, with the slogan "Marbella, because Yola is worth it."[9][10][11] Santiago Segura hired her in 2007 to work as a contributor to his program Sabías a lo que venías [es] on LaSexta, where once a week she gave her personal opinion about books that she had previously read. She appeared on Sálvame [es] in June 2009.

In 2012 she formed a new musical group, Atrevidas, with Sonia Monroy, whose best-known song was a cover of Sabrina's "Boys (Summertime Love)".[12] Since then she has worked as an image girl in nightclubs and announced mobile games through her Twitter account.

She has worked as an assistant to Santiago Segura,[13] contributing to several series[14] and almost 60 television programs. On 11 April 2016, she was announced as a contestant of Supervivientes, where she reached 2nd place in the final.

In 2004, Antonio Ortega used her image for one of his unusual projects, which consisted of opening an office during an exhibition at the Fundació Joan Miró to obtain funds from companies in order to reproduce his wax figure.[15][16][17]
